Ended up with a 89 but should have easily been a 92 or 93. Here is the video. Until next time.

Son of a Bit** I recorded 2 attempts tonight and deleted the wrong one off of my camcorder. Oh well it didn't place in the top 3 so not a big deal. I would have been pissed if I hit a 95 or higher and deleted it by mistake. I just deleted the video off of YouTube. I was wondering why the video was only 34 minutes, I thought I was shooting fast but then it dawned on me that I deleted the wrong attempt on my camcorder.
Bummer. But you will be breaking into the Challenge top 3 soon anyway.

Catch you later,
Dave

Bummer! You could have crushed it. I don't think I've ever started with the first 60 points. I hope you can do it again soon.

I'm currently on a BU Exam break. My wrist has been hurting the last two weeks. At first, I didn't know what was causing it. Now I'm pretty sure it was the BU Exam work, especially the draw shots. I need to let my "BU Exam wrist" heal.

Catch you later,
Dave

I look forward to seeing how high you can score after some dedicated practice. I hope your injury heals faster than I worry mine will take.

Good luck,
Dave

Dang that sucks! Heck of a start though.

I started using the approach you and some others have used on the last drill of just floating the CB along the side rail into the second target position, instead of going two rails with inside off the foot rail, and I’m getting much more consistent results. That last drill always seems kind of hit and miss for me though. Sometimes I do well and other times I have difficulty landing in any of the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th target zones.

I’m traveling at the moment and not playing, but when I get back at the end of this month I’m going to give it another go and see if I can at least top my latest personal best before the challenge is over. I expect to see you in the top three though, sir! Good luck! I’m sure you’ll get there.

Made through test today. Poolhall was open and there was a lot distraction. I did wear headphones because of that Also I had only about one hour time window. In the end my girlfriend came little bit too early(ofc).
Outside is also over 30celcius(85+ farenheit). It brings a lot of damp weather inside(+sharking flies near your face.. ).
Anyways. I think I made 88(10+10+10+10+10+8+15+15). I try get video to Youtube soon. (I did not have my tripod with me so camera placement not perfect)

We haven't anybody post new videos or scores in a while. Maybe some new members can give it a go. And maybe some people already on the list can try to post improved scores.

If you don't do it soon, consider it as a New Year's Resolution. The BU Exams are excellent practice and a fun challenge.

Good luck,
Dave
